Heavenly Father, what an amazing plan of redemption, that despite the fall of Adam, You purposed to redeem mankind by the sacrifice of Your only begotten Son – and that through His death and resurrection I too have received the forgiveness of sin and life everlasting. Thank You that the old creation will one day be totally replaced by the new Creation-in-Christ – when ALL things will become new. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.

“And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.”
(Mark 8:31)

Heavenly Father, thank You that I have been saved by grace - through faith in Christ. But Lord, I realise that to truly become a disciple of Yours, I must deny myself, and all that it entails. I now understand that I must lay my entire life on the sacrificial alter, as a willing offering.. and be ready and willing to say, 'not I but Christ'. May I be prepared to say, in all things - 'not my will but Yours be done', and help me to deny myself, take up my own cross and follow You, willingly and joyfully - to Your praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”
(Mark 8:34)
